So I'm watching the 1934 movie, "Black Cat," an old horror film notable for bringing Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff together in the same film. It's on Chicago's "Svengoolie" show.

Dude. This is SO "Rocky Horror Picture Show"! Hasn't anyone ever noticed this??!

I think I remember that movie.
Is that based on the Edgar Allen Poe story?

Re: I think I remember that movie.
That was the idea when they started working on it, but by the time they finished the script, the story bore absolutely no resemblance to it. Didn't stop them from knowingly lying in the credits and saying it was "inspired" by the Poe story anyway--which Svengoolie mentioned at the top of the show: "Lying to promote a movie? Unheard of!!"
